Produced by Don KostuchTranscriber's Note:
Welcome to the schoolroom of 1900. The moral tone is plain.
"She is kind to the old blind man."
The exercises are still suitable, and perhaps more helpful than
some contemporary alternatives. Much is left to the teacher.
Explanations given in the text are enough to get started
teaching a child to read and write. Counting in Roman
numerals is included as a bonus in the form of lesson
numbers.
The "non-ASCI" text remains as images. The "non-ASCI"
text is approximated in text boxes to right of the image, as are
script images.
The form of contractions includes a space. The contemporary
word "don't" was rendered as "do n't".
The author, not listed in the text is William Holmes
McGuffey.

FOURTH
ECLECTIC READER.
REVISED EDITION.
McGuffey Edition and Colophon are Trademarks of
John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
New York-Chichester-Weinheim-Brisbane-TorontoIn revising the FOURTH READER, the aim has been--as it
has with the other books of the Series--to preserve unimpaired
all the essential characteristics of MCGUFFEY'S READERS.
New articles have been substituted for old ones only where
the advantage was manifest.
The book has been considerably enlarged, and has been
liberally illustrated by the first artists of the country.
It can not be presumed that every pupil has at hand all the
works of reference necessary for the proper preparation of
each lesson; hence all the aids that seem requisite to this
purpose have been given. Brief notices concerning the various
authors represented have been inserted; the more difficult
words have been defined, and their pronunciation has been
indicated by diacritical marks; and short explanatory notes
have been given wherever required for a full understanding of
the text.
Especial acknowledgment is due to Messrs. Houghton,
Osgood & Co. for their permission to make liberal selections
from their copyright editions of many of the foremost
American author whose works they publish.

1. The Hyphen (-) is used between syllables and between
the parts of a compound word; as, No- ble, col-o-ny, and
textbook, easy-chair.
2. The Comma (,), the Semicolon (;), and the Colon (:)
denote grammatical divisions.
NOTE--These marks do not indicate the comparative length
of the pauses to be made where they occur.
3. The Period (.) is placed at the end of a sentence.
It is also used after an abbreviation; as, God is love. Dr.
Eben Goodwin.
4. The Interrogation point (?) denotes a question; as,
Has he come? Who are you?
5. The Exclamation point (!) denotes strong feeling; as,
Oh Absalom! my son! my son!
6. Quotation marks (" ") denote the words of another; as,
God said, "Let there be light."
7. The Apostrophe (') denotes that a letter or letters are left
out; as, O'er, for over; 't is, for it is.
It also denotes the possessive case; as, John's hat.
8. The Curves ( ) include what, if omitted, would not
obscure the sense. The parenthesis, or words included by the
curves, should be read in a low key, and with greater rapidity
than the rest of the sentence.
9. Brackets [ ] include something intended to exemplify
what goes before, or to supply some deficiency, or rectify
some mistake.
10. A Dash (-) denotes a long or significant pause, or an
abrupt change or transition in a sentence.
